Lack of attention to franchise mode..thoughts?

For those who feel that franchise mode is not getting the attention it deserves, here is a place to post those frustrations.

And go...

Re: Lack of attention to franchise mode..thoughts?

Meh. As I've gotten older I don't really care too much. Do I want more depth yes. But doing 30 team control I make my own story lines. As long as the game plays great I'm good.

My plan is to wait it out for a few weeks to see how gameplay is. If no good I'll continue my franchise on 18 and get 19 when the price drops.

This was my first year completing a full season and carrying over my franchise. I haven't had this much fun playing a sports game since NCAA 10 dynasty with Kentucky!

As just stated in the IGN Moments (47min) Video! Their (Design Philosophy) is based on research that tells them to create a faster version of Season mode! I wonder where they are getting all of this data from?

Read the replies to this tweet from the MLB The Show account. If anyone thinks it’s only this forum that believes franchise mode is alive but in need of some new features and depth, you’ll see plenty in agreement. If Twitter is calling for a better franchise mode, there’s no doubting it’s still current and viable.

Re: Lack of attention to franchise mode..thoughts?

I like the idea of the March to October mode. My problem is they state in the stream that the mode was birthed from the fact that they set out to make improvements to franchise and decided to put all of those "improvements" into a new mode. I guess my question is why?

If you added all these improvements to franchise and then decided to make a new mode featuring those "improvements" I am cool with that. But if you scrapped improvements to franchise completely just for the sake of having a new mode then I definitely have a problem with that.

I honestly think they tried to add these improvements to franchise but couldn't find a way to account for all of the variables in franchise to make it actually work. So they said screw it and just threw these new features into a new mode.

I know for a fact that had they just stopped trying to reinvent the wheel and did something like revamp the draft, scouting, or player training engine there would have been a lot of happy franchise people.

The lack of upgrades to franchise, really burns my bunions! I can't eat. I can't sleep. And I'm watching way too much Eskimo porn. I can only hope SDS will hear my cries for help, and make the pain go away.



Seriously though, it's a business. I understand it. Yet, I still prefer otherwise. It's a very good game. But, has the potential to be amazing. And, it was at one time. However, committing time and resources to franchise, doesn't really move the needle for SDS very much, in regards to sales. As an offline franchise guy, it's disappointing. I've come to learn that there are countless things in life, in which I have no control. This is just another.

Haha. I love it. They can use telemetry data as an excuse all they want, but twitter is a huge medium and there seems to be a lot of pissed off people
